I feel like there was something missing from my list of things to buy for baby anyone else?
Yes! I consistently feel like we're not ready! But I think it's more like "Oh. My. God. I'm going to be somebody's MAMA!" I'm not ready, as opposed to the "I don't have enough stuff" I'm not ready.
We're going really bare-bones minimum for the Bun to start with, because we're not having our "shower" until it's a welcoming party. All we have is our bassinet, diapers, hand-me-down clothes, carseat... uh, and I guess that's it, really, since we're planning to breastfeed. Oh! We got some adorable hoodie towels from my mother-in-law's best friend, so we've got some of those, too. I've also got a couple of flannel-lined vinyl sheets to use on the bed for changing. I think they're designed as portable changing mats anyway. (It helps us keep our stuff to a minimum because we aren't making a nursery until we move in September - no space in the apartment!)
Sure, but as long as you have the basics you will be ok.
You still have a while to go yet, so you've got plenty of time to buy whatever you need.
